1 A collection of Sai Baba devotee s experiences!! Compiled and Edited by Sai Sewak Naresh Kumar

2 My experiment with GOD The idea of having a complimentary book on Sai baba with this audio CD was not just a marketing idea, or a sales strategy!!! It was a conviction to bring to the masses the miracles Sai baba has brought to millions of the devotees all over the world. Being born and brought up in a well to do family and with a mother who was so much into rituals could not bring the required faith in me as might have happened to so many people. Rightly said, the feeling of faith in god comes from inside ( or rightly said from your soul ) and when you graduate with a computer engineering degree, actually makes you think in a rationale and very scientific manner. In short, I was an atheist/nastik to the hilt. Being NASTIK doesn t means you are inhuman person, infact I was a very sensitive and emotional person, but the existence of GOD never attracted me. Going to a temple was just a tourist trip for me, just to see the people madly in love with GOD, and some even believed just because of fear!! In Fact many a times I had big arguments with many godly men and I would challenge them that you cannot prove the existence of GOD on the earth. My family tried their best to counter me with lot of examples where we could feel the existence of GOD, but a scientific mind is never easily drawn into something godly or supernatural. I believed in karma, and believed that if you do good karma, you will get good results. A typical Karmayogi!!! 2

3 I had access to best of the astrologers, palmist etc. And they recommended different stones at different phases of my life. But strangely all their predictions were incorrect!!! I wore those precious stones just because my family wanted that. My philosophy was simple, nobody can change your fate, nobody can tell the future. For me luck happens when preparation meets opportunity. There is nothing like MIRACLE in real life. Very strangly whenever I had a business problem or some other problems, I would easily go to temple and pray to GOD. Even had few UPWAAS, because some body told me that I had to do it to get through my problems. Most of the times the problems were not solved!!! The interesting part is that a NASTIK person like me could go to a temple only because I had some problems or was it just fear? I think that is what we call a human being, we are so much uncertain of our future, always so much insecured!! Last year I met a pandit ji and somebody told me that this pandit ji is really good in telling the future. Of sheer curiosity ( I think most of the people do this for curiosity!!! or anxiety about future ) I invited him to my home. The very next day he turned up at my place. He sat on the floor and asked me also to sit in front of him. Then he started telling me about my present state, my past and about my future and kept speaking for almost an hour!!! He was a sai baba devotee and kept saying that I will be a big sai baba devotee one day and will do so many things for sai baba devotees. He also told me that I will soon be going to shirdi. Anyway he left and also left me confused as ever. Going to a temple was always a tourist visit for me and going to shirdi in month of april was never a good idea due to hot summers. 3

4 But amazingly I started planning a holiday to goa and thought of visiting shirdi before landing up in goa. I went to shirdi within 15 days. I got hold of a VIP darshan and was standing infront of baba s Samadhi and idol. It was a new experience for a person like me and I felt that baba was looking in my eyes and was talking to me. I was spellbound and was unable to move from my place. It seems like baba was telling me so many things and suddenly I felt so much peace in myself. My wife asked me about my experience but I could not tell her all that. It was so mesmerizing. I was also amazed at seeing so many people in shirdi with so much faith and belief in baba. The place shirdi itself was a place with so much divinity. Baba told me that I will be venturing into music industry and will be changing my career route completely. On the way to goa I halted at Mumbai for few days and did some research on music industry. I tied up with a composer for my first sai baba album Sai Tumko Naman. It was a big project for a novice like me in the industry but baba was present everywhere and the production of the album with big names of the industry was a cakewalk for me. The album featured Bhajan Samrat Anup Jalota, Suresh Wadkar, Sadhna sargam and Mohd Aziz. The album was released with the help of a big company and was fairly successful!! So actually what happened? Why a NASTIK overnight turned into a big AASTHIK? Was it fear? Or enlightenment? I tried to ask my self this and could find a reply. I had read a book called the secret which actually says that whatever you think is what you are, or simply said, if you can conceive something strongly, you will finally get.. but how? its only because you have faith in something. The faith can be in GOD, in your 4

5 5 Sai Ki Nazren Karam own capacity or in a precious stone. If you don t have faith in something it will never be able to help you. Surprisingly sai baba gave us his golden words. Shraddha and Saburi.Shraddha actually means faith, when we keep shraddha we actually have faith, a belief.sai baba was a great soul and he managed to touch million of hearts and could transform million of lives. Million of people are having faith in baba, due to which they get lot of will power to fight with their adversities and live a peaceful life. It was a nice explanation for a technical person like me. In the mean time I planned my own music label and named it 99musique the name itself is inspired from baba s number 9. I wanted the first album as a music label to be on sai baba only and so got Sai Ki nazren karam. Being on the facebook helped me to come in contact with many sai baba devotees spread across the world. Everybody had some amazing story to tell about baba s miracle in their lives. As just a fraction of the total sai baba devotees are on the internet, I thought of spreading the real life experiences of sai devotees to the masses through this book. The idea is to tell the modern world that sai baba and his teachings are still relevant in modern times, and he is still playing a very important part in devotees everyday life. His list of devotees is growing multiple folds. Being on facebook was a big advantage for me and I started connecting with sai devotees from all over the world. Initially the devotees were a bit reluctant and I thought that I may have to shelve the idea of having such a book, but then baba is always there for any work done with good intentions. The stories started pouring in and I started getting lot of calls from sai devotees from all over the world. People wanted to share

6 their experiences with me. And suddenly the book was full of such experiences. I found that people had great faith in sai baba and that s why they were experiencing incidents which we call MIRACLES!!! As I don t believe in mythology, sai baba was a unique example of a living GOD who walked on the land of shirdi. I feel honored that I could see his real pictures and could touch his tomb. Life has suddenly changed for me. Sai baba is a way of life for me now. I can feel his presence in my life at every stage and see him guiding me. Sai baba never said he was GOD, but he helped us to realize the presence of GOD and made our life simpler and better. I think there is a baba temple in every baba devotee and if that is pure, baba will always reside in a devotee. So stay away from hollow egos, anger and materialistic attractions, and follow the path shown by baba to humanity. I strongly believe that god is present in every human being and so every human being should be respected and taken care of. If we start respecting every human, we suddenly find a different environment around us. I have collected these life experiences from sai devotees based around the globe. Most of the experiences I received through . As we go through the experiences we feel that sai baba is very much alive and still inspiring so many lives on this earth. Be it a small miracle or a even a life saving experience, the faith of devotees in sai baba is amazing which actually inspires the reader to delve more into baba s teachings and 6

7 bring peace and prosperity in their lives. Sai Ki Nazren Karam I have not changed the language of the material which was send to me by devotees as it would have made it more dramatic and artificial. I have also started a group on facebook through which we send a sai message to all the members of the group. Recently one of the members called me and blessed me for the daily sai messages. He told me that he has been going through a bad phase and my daily sai message has helped him a lot to face his adversities. His blessings were the biggest gift for me from sai baba. I m honored and humbled that sai message through internet could transform somebody s life. In the same way, even if one life is transformed after reading this book, that will be a big achievement for me. Finally I would like to convey my thanks to all the sai dveotees who contributed to this book by sending me their stories and also those sai devotees who helped me in compiling this book. I m especially thankful to my wife, whose constant support helped me in completing this project. Also I m indebted to Ms Nidhi Sherry, who is also a big sai devotee, for her contributions, without whom this book would never have been completed. A special thanks to Manisha Rautela Bisht who manages the popular web site for her constant support for making this project a reality.. 7

8 SAI Devotee s experience in their own words!!!! 8

9 DIPIKA VASWANI My experience are of three types-- Career, Marriage and Health. Marriage- Married for 15 years, never had marital harmony, no love or peace in life. Eversince I came to baba's sharn- -Some kind of switch baba turned on. Marital life normalized filled with bliss of love, understanding and care. Health--I had severe claustrophobiacould not travel in metro trains, go to basement or even sleep in the corner of bed. I badly used to get breathless if I was put in any enclosed space. Without treatment after suffering so many years it corrected by baba. Now I am normal. Career--I have been struggling for 3 years to establish my career in medicine. Being a Dermatologist from India, in the USA I have been jobless for 3 years. After coming to baba I got a job and things are turning positive towards my residency in the USA. All this is because of Baba's kripa. Trust him and the prayers are answered. It is so true. "My eyes is ever on those who love me". 9

10 NEERU SINGHAL Yes...i daily face lots of sai baba miracles in my daily life but i want to share one...of mine friend... a sai devotee girl poonam...i feel that baba gave her a spiritual power at this age.she is of 27 years...but due to her sixth scene,she is able to know that which color of dress baba is wearing on that day... she only predict and we got always right answer...i m telling u her real story...in 2007 she was appearing for her final exams of M.A (social science) in Aligarh(U.P)...she has given three exams and was preparing for her 4th exam... she knew the exam time was 2:30pm to 5:30 pm...she reached at examination center but she was shocked to know that exam has been over it was in morning 8:30 to 11:30 am...she came to home n started crying...she was upset she has missed exam of final year,mean naturally u were fail...means u have lost this year...have to wait for next year... means u have lost your one year...she was very upset...that time somebody suggest her...if u will apply for re-exams for that year..it can be possible but this is only depend on university norms.because u didnt appeared in main exams..luck and chance are she said ok...that time due to some problems she coudnt able to get right information about forms of re-exams by market and university... and she had been busy with their new coaching center work...one day she came to know that re-exams form last date has been closed...she was only one day late to get this information...she get lost 10

11 her that year she was thinking and saying to baba...''''''.tunay jo kiya hoga theek kiya hoga but this time mujhay samajh main nahi aaya akhir aaisa kyu hua meray saath"""""' she was doind mentally prepare for herself for next year exams..means she had to give one more year to complete her M.A...After some days one of her class met came with her mark-sheet... she didn't see that mark-sheet...said to friend please put it on my table. i know my result..i M FAIL...i knew... but her friend said to her please check it only once..but she was crying and was not seeing...after some time...she saw her mark sheet and found...she is pass in all subject and she is also got marks 55% on that paper..who had been missed"...we all are shocked that time...without given exam she got marks in that subject...sab sai nath ki kripa hai... "Miracles happen to those who believe in them". 11

12 SUMITRA DEVI In the mid of year 2009, I had to go thru a very bad phase of my life which is full of miseries and I don t know how to cope and overcome the situation. As baba said in Sai Charitra: let my devotees be at any distance, he will be drawn to me like sparrow with thread tied to its feet. Sai has bring me so close to him, it s only because of my merits in past birth that made me to know Samartha Sadguru Shri Sainath Maharaj. On 2nd May 2009, my brother in-law came to know all my problems and ask me to go to Sai temple and pray to Sai whole heartedly to give me strength to overcome my problem. My brother-in-law is a true messenger of Sai who help me to seek for Sai s guidance and assistance. Indeed, the next day he brought me to the Sai mandir and asks me pray wholehearted to Sai and surrender completely to baba all my worries and problem and fully trust that whatever Sai will do, He will do for your good. From that day onwards, Sai has come into my life and I start realizing and feel him wherever I am and whatever I do. In the very same evening, while watching a TV program I saw SAI s picture and the next day my cousin sister gave me a Sai picture and ask me to keep it, SAI HAS COME TO ME. Sai s presence in my life has confirmed and strengthens my faith and devotion towards him. In fact, Sai introduce a lot of Sai families who helps and guides me in my prayers and how to completely surrender at Sai s lotus feet. Once Sai came into my life, he bears 12

13 all the burdens and slowly I manage to overcome the entire painful situation. I strongly agree that it is only SAI who helps me to come out from the problem and made me realize that the journey of life is very beautiful. Sai taught me and still teaching a lot of great lessons and assisting me in crossing the worldly mundane existence. May Sai deva be with us all and guide us in every single aspect of life. Let s us be humble, meditate on Sai s form, ask for forgiveness, be thankful and surrender completely at Sai s lotus feet. Sainath Maharaj ki JAI!! Trust in Me and your prayer shall be answered. 13

14 RHEA NAYAR I have been a follower of Sai nath ji from a very long time, baba has been with me all the time, when i cry he makes me laugh, when he sees me smiling, and he does something as if he really wants to see me laughing... I simple bow down to baba s feet for what all he has given me till now. I have been into my acting skills from a long time but have left everything on baba for its run away miracle to happen, I have been registered with one of the biggest modelling site.basekchance.com which is into makeover of aspiring models and actors, they have a column which picks up the model for the month, and yesterday night when i was viewing this column I asked baba when will i be the face of the month and honestly before i woke up today I received a call from a friend of mine working in a call centre, congratulating me for being the face of the month(may 2010) on basekchance.com Oooppsss!!!! I didn t believe it till the time i viewed it and i was speechless... I simply went upto baba and thanks him for all his blessings... at times he really makes us feel on the top of the world. I have immense FAITH in Sai babaji.. "Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself. Remember all things are possible for those who believe". 14

15 ASHALATHA. R BABA SPOKE TO ME FROM HIS TOMB INTRODUCTION OF MY SAI TO MY FAMILY- It was in the 1980 s my father had a very massive heart attack and he was given 48hrs time by the cardiologists, but by the grace of God he came out of the danger. Following this ailment in 1990 s. He had blockage in his valves and the doctors advised him to go for Bypass surgery. We had lot of financial and emotional set backs at that time. Just then my dad came to now about Sathya Saibaba hospitals, providing free medical services. When he approached them for help they advised him to go to Puttaparthi as the specialists will be available there. Infact, until then my father never used to even prostrate before God and was never interested in any activities related to God. On the other hand my mom was very sincere in performing her fasting and pooja. After going to Puttaparthi my dad became very religious and it was very strange for us. I always used to wonder how come my dad changed so much he also brought photos of Sai Baba in which both the Babas were seen. That was when I first saw my Shirdi Sai, but frankly speaking I would just look at him with no devotion. BHAIRAVA SAI TEMPLE-MADIPAKKAM- CHENNAI : One fine morning, when I was in the backyard of my house I got to hear lovely bhajans. I enquired my mom she said. Don t you know a new Sai temple has been constructed, she started saying, everyday you take the same path to reach 15

16 your bus stop and you don t even notice this much. (I always had the passion to go to temples) but I never expected one there. Immediately I thought why not I go and see the temple. (I was doing my Masters degree and was also working in a Pvt. Co.,) I plucked some hibiscus flowers and took a piece of camphor and got ready. I went to the temple, it was about 8.00 a.m. in the morning. I just entered the temple that was my first visit to Shirdi sai temple. I saw my Sai. Enough I felt, Now I don t need anything more in my life, just the very first sight of my Sai, satisfied all my senses, I felt so happy,felt as if I had been longing for this glimpse and I got it. Words fail to express my joy. I just wanted to sit there and gaze at our Sai. I did not realize that Sai had already tied the strings to my legs and pulled me over there. I did not feel like even going to my office. From then I started visiting the temple to see my Sai everyday with red hibiscus flowers. The days when there is abhishekam for Sai then I will settle down, not even worried about my office timings. It s really a wonder that none of those days I had trouble in reaching my office. I used to get comfortable conveyance and was never questioned on those days by my manager. Baba used to send me with lot of Prasad for all my colleagues and they would be so happy receiving it. If I am little late then they would know the reason. I became very curious to know about Sai and I did not know anything about Shri Sai Satcharitra. I did not even know whom to contact? I came to know that my department manager himself was a sai devotee so I requested him to share Shri Sai Satcharitra with me for few days so that I will get 16

17 chance to know about Sai, don t know why, but he gave some reasons and did not have the intention to give me. I was little upset. Within few days after this incident on Thursday I got to know about a lovely person, I met her in the bus stop. She was very sweet and nice. I came to know that she was a Sai devotee and felt very happy to know about that. With grace and guidance of Baba, I made use of the opportunity provided by Him and requested her for Shri Sai Satcharitra. She happily agreed with a condition to return the same at my earliest. She also added that Sai had blessed her in her dreams and this Sai Satcharitra is very special to her. I felt very happy and fortunate to receive the book for reading. When I came home my mom started scolding me saying, Sai Satcharitra is not a novel that you can read whenever you like, it is a very holy book like Bhagavad Gita and has to be treated with due respect. I was just craving to read no matter whatever comes in the way. I begged for pardon to Baba for my this unknown act. I used to even read without taking my bath, I did not do this act to show any disrespect to Sai Satcharitra, but I did not want to give any excuse to myself for any delay. One early morning, I had the following blissful dream where I saw some pooja has been conducted in the Sai temple and devotees were dispersing after the pooja, I had been to the pooja with my family members and my aunt also accompanied us. Just five of us were waiting to exit just then our Sai stretched his right hand and pointed his index finger right towards me and said come here, I was shocked and wondering whether Sai is pointing on someone else and I started looking around. 17

18 Sai - you come here. I -was trembling with fear and my legs failed to step forward, somehow I managed to reach Sai. I saw our eternal father with the radiant glow. (Sai was so graceful, He was glowing with his divinity, garlanded and surrounded by so many lovely flowers, Prasad and so on.. ) Sai said- get me a box, don t think I am asking yaasagam -(requesting to someone for something) this word was very stern which I can never forget in my life. Sai - don t show any pride while narrating this to others. I - nodded my head and was still standing there gazing at Sai, Sai- asked me -what you want? I said- Sai I want a flower blessed by you. Sai said- All the flowers around me are blessed (showing His hand to the flowers around him). Take this one (pointing to a red hibiscus flower) I immediately picked up the flower. And got up from my dream. I did not know whether all this happened in my dream or was it a real incident. I felt as if I was aloft. I did not know what box Sai is talking about? Whom to tell, who will trust me? I was totally confused, not knowing how to enjoy this blessing, but there was a strong instinct telling me to do a search on this dream. I felt I should first rush to Sai. I hurried and went to see Sai, I was not having a word to say just tears were rolling down and I just stood in front of Sai, did not even realized the fact that the priest is standing in front of me with arati. He must have understood that I am just drowned in Sai s nectar. He waited for other devotees to disperse and then asked me what happened; I did not know how to narrate? 18

19 Priest- don t worry whatever it is I am ready to hear. I said - Sai came in my dreams and narrated the whole dream to him. By then another Priest also came to us and listened to my dream. They said since this is a new temple we just had one box to store the shawls of Sai, day by day the number of devotees coming here has increased and we have lot of shawls and no place to store so we thought of going to the near by shop to buy a box, but in vain we just found aristocrat suitcases whereas we are searching for trunk boxes(huge boxes made of aluminum sheets) half mindedly we picked up the suitcase and reached near the cash counter and finally decided not to buy and postponed the purchase for the week end, so that we will be able to go to the main shopping area where such boxes are sold. Now Sai has come in your dream and had asked for the box. It means He wants it through you. Sairam, I freezed there. What a blessing! Am I qualified for all this? I did not know how to react to this, I did not know whether I should run back home and tell my parents or just sit there forever and look at the divine face and enjoy the bliss!! By then the priest told me, this is not an unusual thing, this is one of the ways of Sai to sit in the heart of his chosen devotee. The word happy is not enough to describe the happiness I experienced on that day. Then I told the priest - next week, I will get my salary, please tell me how much you need for the box? The priest said,- Sai had asked you for the box so it is not right on our part to take any money from you so you better buy the 19

20 kind of box you can. I told my parents they said as per your wish we will wait for your salary and buy the box. We bought the trunk box and took it to Sai, my dad wanted my name to be on that, but I refused recalling Sai s words, not to show any pride. Just not knowing how to thank my Sai for being so kind to me, I feel one of the ways to show my gratitude and devotion is to share the same with all my Sai devotees without any ego/pride as Sai advised and guide/help others as per the wish of Sai. Whatever I am today is because of my Sai, at times I wonder in spite of experiencing such a supreme bliss well before my marriage how did I get into this materialistic life but Sai has his own plans for us. He works out each and every second of our life. He is the best planner. There is nothing I can regret in my life. From the time Sai entered into my life he started taking care of our family, He has taken all the pains and problems and setbacks caused due to our mistakes and has given a peaceful and contented life. He has made me to feel that there is nothing more I want in life. I am able to feel the eternal peace which many learned scholars and the richest people in the world are searching not knowing it can be attained only with the blessings of our beloved Sai. Sai always says, All those who help us /guide us in reaching our guru should be considered as real relatives. Till date I am able to maintain good friendship with my friend who shared her Shri Sai Satcharitra and enabled me to experience this wonderful miracle. I bow to Sai and to all such people who helped me to reach my Guru. Last but not least I would like to thank the author of this Book Nareshji for 20

21 publishing the miracles experienced by me, and pray to my saima to bless him and his family always. ''The giver gives, but really he is sowing the seed for later: the gift of a rich harvest.'' 21

22 BRAJ KISHORE After finishing my BFA course, I came down to delhi from patna for work so i had less money on my pocket. I got a interview call from advertising agency. On that day I had only Rs. 20/- in my pocket, It was very urgency for me to get that job, here i want to mention that my family is the ardent devotee of sai but i am not...but when I entered the interview room i saw baba s pic there and prayed him for the first and asked him to get this job to me. Baba listened my prayers and got the job in advertising agency soon and also with good amount of salary..which I never expected...its all sai deva kripa to me...i was so happy...that baba listened my prayers...by that time I started trusting sai 22 deva...after that i went to shirdi with my family, there I bought a parshad for baba with rose petal for my father and rose flowers. I thought to buy a rose mala for baba, but I was not having that much money to buy it. When I reached Samadhi mandir in front of baba I started crying and couldn t stop myself. Then I said sorry to baba and said next time when I will come to you will definitely get rose mala for you. I also said baba give me that much money so that I can buy for you. Soon after a year I got increment in my salary, again more than expected. Then again I went to shirdi and bought rose mala for him, but in return baba gave me 2 mala s..its all baba leela. ''I give my devotees whatever they ask, until they ask for what I want to give.''

23 NIKHIL When i see SHRI SAI BABA murthi first time in my life. i just pray for 2 Seconds. and miracle is that i wen't to SHIRDI next day suddenly... i couldn't believe on myself... by this act... Moral : Baba jisko bulate hai wo shirdi jata nahi pohoch jata hai... In the year of 2009 only i reach SHIRDI 11 Times... Love uuuu Sai... ''God has agents everywhere and their powers are vast.'' 23

24 BHAVNA BHATNAGAR HOW I MET BABA - "History repeats itself" is true in the case of God s blessings. He blesses all animate and inanimate things alike, age after age. Just as Hemadpant mentioned in "Sai Satcharita" that Baba pulls the wires in such a way that a devotee is drawn to him like a sparrow, I too had a similar experience. Till the year 2001, I did not believe Sai Baba. I thought that being born in a devout Hindu family where already so many gods and goddesses are worshipped; I don t need to add on another to my list of monotonous worship. So I neither had the opportunity nor the inclination to bow to Baba. Meanwhile I got a photograph of Baba and it was hung in my house. Although I passed it and looked at it several times a day, yet I did not have any feeling of being attracted. At that time I was undergoing a training program in an institute. The fellow-students there took me one day to Sai Baba s temple at Lodhi Road in Delhi. When I climbed the stairs, I had a strange feeling inside me. The moment I saw Baba s figure, tears started rolling down my cheeks and I suddenly felt as though I had an everlasting relationship with Baba for the past many births. I read the eleven commandments of Baba in the premises. When I read the first "Vachan" (which says "Whoever puts his feet on Shirdi soil, his sufferings would come to an end"), I thought that it will be impossible for me to go to Shirdi. This was the time when my brother-in-law who lived in Mumbai, was transferred to Malaysia. He wanted our 24

25 family to visit him before he left Mumbai. After reaching there we came to know that he had reserved tickets for us for Shirdi and made all the necessary preparations. There arrived the auspicious day when I took Darshan of Sai Baba at Shirdi along with my family! All this happened within a span of twenty five days from the day of my visit to Lodhi Road temple. Isn t it a lively example of how Baba attracts and pulls people to himself when the store of their merits predominates their sins and thus crushes their sins and sets them on a righteous path????? I was, thus, attached to Sai Baba and since then he has seen me through all difficult periods of my life by guiding me and alighting my path. It was because of his encouragement that I endeavored to launch the magazine Sai aur Aap through Saiaas. (Society For Poor And Underprivileged Children ). It has been introduced as a platform for all those Sai devotees who wish to share their experiences and also for those who wish to partake of this feast of Sai leelas. ''Without my grace, not even a leaf can move.'' 25

26 PUSHPNDER KAUR Someone from my professional circuit gave me a packet gifted it to me..but becoz i didnt like that person i never opened it..and just to keep it off my eyes i kept it in the back of my car and forgot abt it...after about two months becoz i ws too disturbed about my sons condition and his progress in school..i promised to go to si mandir for 5 days continously...i started on monday and on wednesday i dnt knw wt made me take out that packet frm d back of the car... there were three gifts in it..but i only took out the one wid golden wrapping paper and brought it home...when i opened it..it had pure white mural of baba...baba came home..i ws i tears and knew it ws baba s gesture to tell me..he is right there...wid me always...i never leave home now widout touching feet of baba in that mural... My business is to give blessings. 26

27 ARUNA My strength, future, success, and healthy life comes from my Guru, SAI BABA. I have had so many miracles in my life and sometimes, I, myself, do not believe that Sai Baba can help me every step in the difficulties in my life but SAI BABA always comes through for me. The New Year s evening on December 31, 1997 was a very cold, stormy night as I was preparing and getting ready for the celebration of ringing in a New Year with friends. In another part of Saratoga Springs, my ex-husband had an asthma attack and lost conscienceness in his home with my elder son. My son called 911 for emergency medical assistance. For some strange reason, the ambulance drivers could not find his home. The condition of my children s father was worsening. His body was turning blue and had no pulse as he was going deeper into this near death coma. My oldest son was becoming very, very nervous because of his father s condition and the ambulance had not arrived. He was losing oxgyen very quickly to his brain which could cause permanent brain damage. My son became so alarmed, he ran out into the very cold stormy evening searching for help for his father. He ran out into the stormy conditions in his stocking feet and pleaded with his neighbor to help his father who he thought was dying. He shouted to his neighbor who was shoveling his driveway across the street that the ambulance had not arrived to save my father. He informed him that there was an 27

28 ambulance driving around in circles in the neighborhood searching for a house. He told him they can t find your house. My son went running down the street in his stocking feet to find and direct them back to his house. My son went with his father in the ambulance. He told the nurses to call my mother,that my father is dying. Several minutes later, my son called me telling me "Daddy is dying, please come quickly." I called my girlfriend who is a board certified doctor. She informed me that she would come over and drive me to the hospital and stay with me. My doctor friend left her party and guests to be with me during this crucial time. When I arrived at the hospital, my son yelled at me for not coming sooner, "didn t the nurses call you." I looked my son directly into his eyes and gently told him the nurses did not call me. I reassured my son "I am here." Upon entering The Intensive Care Unit where he was admitted, I was stunned to see him surrounded by tubes feeding into his body. The color of his skin was blue with no pulse. The physican told me that there was no hope and it was a very serious condition. I started crying uncontrollably. The attending physician informed me he may not come out of the coma and there was no hope I was crying and thought of SAI BABA, and started chanting sai chalisa and took Sai Baba s picture out of my pocketbook and asked the doctor to placed on his headboard so SAI BABA would look down on him. I gave the VIBHUTI to his doctor to apply all over his body. While chanting sai chalisa for nine days invoking a healing blessing, I stood by his hospital bedside. On the ninth day, he miraculously came out of coma, he felt tickling all over his body and on the tenth day he was absolutely alert. SAI 28

29 Baba intervention on his behalf made a full recovery. It was a miracle from SAI BABa, His physician could not believe his remarkable recovery with no damage to his body and brain. His doctor wanted to send him to a rehabilitation hospital but I asked the physician if I could bring him home to recover. The physician said "all right, Aruna, he is all yours, we did nothing. I said, please do not give me credit, give credit to my guru, SAI BABA. After two weeks, he was able to go back to his full routine. That was the biggest miracle SAI BABA gave me and since 1997, of course, he is very healthy and very successful in his life. BABA BELSS YOU,GOOD LUCK... ARUNA. Meditate on me either with form or without form, that is pure bliss. 29

34 INDRANI BASU Sai baba speaks...event of may 2008 we have a laminated photo of our beloved sai nath in our pooja room. Few months back, we noticed cracks developed all over the upper portion of baba s photo, the entire chest portion, especially on the left side. As if the glass has broken into several pieces. It was very saddening, as we felt the crack with our fingers. It was the toughest phase of our lives. A hell of time we never experienced. Then one day, while i was meditating, baba revealed to me though my inner self, the cracks would vanish once our crisis get solved and this we gradually noticed that with every passing of day our crisis lessened and the cracks started to disappear. And in the midst of this, one day i prayed to him, requesting baba to call us to shirdi. Then one day impulsively i decided to visit shirdi in just two days notice during summer of Saw the trains timing on the net, 370 waiting list...2nd or third a/c was next to impossible during vacations so the sleeper was the ultimate choice. Went to the ticket counter personally there also came to know the same thing, stood very dissapointed in the corner of the counter... suddenly the person called saying 2 berths were available till kopergaon just after two days... (this happened on 19 may 2008 and our ticket was reserved for 21st may 2008) good god! How did this happen...there was a waiting list of 370 passengers... We got confrimed reserved 34

35 ticket also for the return from shirdi to calcutta especially when the summer vacation was on and there was a waiting list of 370 passengers. These are experiences...dont call these experiences as miracles, because miracles are required to convince those who are reluctant to accept the supreme power of baba.. These experiences are nothing but his fulfilling of the promise that he gave to each one of us when he said "if you spread your palms with devotion before me, i am immediately with you day and night. My abode is in your heart and i am within you.. If you look at me i look to you" God will show His love. He is kind to all. 35

36 JAYALAXMI In 1996, 6 of us including myself wanted to go to Puttaparthi for Guru Purnima. Our flight was delayed from Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia to Chennai. We already booked another flight from Chennai to Puttapathi on the same day. We were trying our best to get another flight to Chennai but in vain. So we had to put up at the Kuala Lumpur airport the whole night. Finally we managed to get Indian Airlines the next morning. The flight reached Chennai around 9.00 am. Guess what, my luggage and another friend's luggage was missing. So we had to make a report at Chennai airport and by the time we reached the local flight to Puttaparthi we were stopped cause we were late by 5 minutes. Then my friend contacted her local friend for transport and we managed to get a van and each of us had to pay RS 1000 for the trip to Puttaparthi. The van filled up full tank of diesel and was travelling to Puttaparthi when all of a sudden knocked into a stone and the diesel tank broke and of cause diesel leaking. This happened around midnight at a very lonely village road. No one around to help. After some time a big lorry came by helped to tow our van with us in it to the nearest town. There we put up at a small lodge and the van was repaired the next morning which was the Guru Purnima day, that is 29 July Well we finally reached Puttaparthi in the evening and managed to hear Baba's discourse. I meanwhile had to buy some clothes 36

37 for myself as my luggage was missing. We stayed in Puttaparthi for 5 days. When I reached Chennai to come back to Malaysia., I enquired regarding my missing bag but still could not find it. Some of my friends stayed back in Chennai and I travelled back to Malaysia alone. When I reached Kuala Lumpur, I again enquired about my missing bag at the unclaimed bags section but still could not find my bag. But to my amazement my friend's bag was there. Since I was holding the original report of the missing bags, I had to go the airport on another day when my friends were returning to claim her bag. I was frustrated as my bag was still missing so I told Baba I am not going to find my bag anymore at the airport. My friend took her bag and went back home. I was still at the airport when I noticed a western tourist who also lost his bag and making a report at the counter. Something in me told me to go to the counter and approach the white tourist regarding his lost bag. And as he was talking to me I noticed on the other side of the counter 2 bags. I couldn't recognise any of the bags because they looked alike and the name tags were not there. I asked the counter clerk whether I can check the side compartment and to my utter amazement that was my bag. If I hadn't gone to the tourist to enquire I would not have found my bag. The counter clerk told me that my bag went all over and just arrived at the airport and they could not trace the owner because name tags came off from the bag. I thanked Baba for giving back my bag as I had my favourite sarees in it. Well my long story brother. I do not 37

38 know whether it is worth publishing but since you asked I am telling you this incident. Then in 2006 I have accepted Shirdi Baba as my Sathguru. Always think of God and you will see what He does. 38

42 NEELAM SINGH Chamatkar Svayam mein poorn kintu Rahasyamayi.. Kisi ko bhi aakarshit karne ki kshamata se paripoorn.. Kai log ismein yakeen karte hain, kai ansunaa kar dete hain aur kai jeevan guzar dete haun Ek Chamatkar ki aasha mein.. Wo Iss shabd se bhalibhanti parichit thi kintu koi aastha na thi uski ismein.. Apni hi dhun mein rahne wali ek chanchal ladki.. Dinduniya se bekhabar.. Ek din uski maa ke Guruji,BABA ke sewak aur bhakt uske ghar padhare. Uski maa ki Baba mein bahut aastha thi..aur wo sirf ek aagyakari beti hone ke karan unki sewa mein lagi thi, lekin uski jhunjhlahat kabhi kabhi uske chehre par saaf zahir ho jati thi.. Kuchh bhi ho uska mann nishchhal aur pavitra tha.. Wo duniya ke prapancho se achhuti thi.. Teen din kaise beet gaye pata na chala Gurudev ki vidai ka waqt aa gaya.. Train ke kuchh ghante deri se chalne ka fayada sabhi log zyada se zyada Gurudev ke sanidhya aur aashirwad pa kar uthana chahte the. Aur Wo kahin durr baithi ye sab dekh rahi thi.. Sabki nazren uski taraf tab gayi jab Gurudev ne usse apne paas bulaya.. Shayad BABA ne unhen aagya di thi.. Usse paas bula kar kaha.. Ye meri Beti hai, aur ye mere paas rahegi.. jab bhi tumhen zarurat ho mujhe yaad karna..main aaoonga.. Aur aashirwaad diya..sabke Aashchrya ki koi seema na thi.. Kintu usse iss baat ka jaise koi yakeen hi na tha.. Samay ka pahiya apni raftaar se chalta raha..baba uske pathpradarshak bane rahe..uske Vivah ke avasar par sabne Baba ki upasthiti ka anubhav kiya..lakin 42

43 wo ab bhi avishwas ke sath ek hi sawal karti rahi..ki Baba ne to apne paas bulane ka vada kiya tha.. par aisa hua to nahi.. Waqt tezi se bitne laga..wo apni duniya mein magan ho gayi, kabhi kabhi Baba ko yaad karti aur kabhi nahi.. Lekin Baba ne uska saath nahi chhoda.. aur wo samay bhi aa gaya jab usse Mumbai aana pada.. Shayad yahi waqt tha jab usse Baba ki zarurat thi..abhi kuchh hi samay hue the usse Shift kiye hue ki usse pataa chala aske Pati ko ek Lailaaj bimaari hai..uska sab kuchh jaise tahasnahas ho gaya.. Aur usse Baba ki yaad aayi..tasveer ke saamne jakar khoob roi wo aur puchha Kya Apni Beti ke sath koi aisa karta hai kya..ab sab tumhare hath mein hai Ye Chamtkar nahi to aur kya hai Aaj 7 saal ho gaye iss ghatna ko,wo Apne pati aur bachchon ke sath khush hai.. Aaj bhi Baba uske sath hain aur hamesha Swapn mein uska margdarshan karte hain.. Ab wo Pyar se Baba ko Maai ( MAA ) bulati hai aur wo uski maa banke pyaar se use thapkiyan dete hain.. WO aur koi nahi MAIN hi hoon.. Aaj bhi waisi hi Chancha aur Nishchhal.. Bass aisi hi rahna chahti hoon.. Apni Maai ke Pyar aur aashirwad ke sath.. Have faith and patience. Then I will be always with you wherever you are. 43
